Ellen Pickering

Camera Trainee

  • Freelancer: Available

I am an inspiring cinematographer. I have been working in the film and tv industry for a year and half and I have enjoyed every moment. I come from a background of art and design and have gone on to work within the camera department on several productions. The opportunities that I have been a part of have provided me with the appreciation for creative media and broadened my understanding of the technical aspects of camera work that I take with me on every project. I enjoy working as part of a team, solving problems and facing challenges with confidence and enthusiasm. I am a very adventurous person having been lucky enough to travel around the world experiencing new cultures, and the camera department gives me the chance to enjoy the outdoors and being away on location. I am excited to see what else the camera department has to offer and the journey it is going to take me on.
